Happy Halloween

Halloween is such a great holiday! My kids think and think on what they want to be each year. My younger son is usually the quickest to decide. He can have his costume picked out in November and never change his mind. My girls normally waiver back and forth a bit until I make them lock in a decision. (My oldest doesn't dress up anymore really.) This year, my older daughter came up with the super cool idea to be a spirit.


I have to say, I think we knocked this out of the park.


Really, it's a very, very simple costume. We used Sisboom's Devon to create this classic gown from an old white bed sheet. But the result was definitely NOT your stereotypical ghost.


I lengthened the pattern to create the gown, making the back much longer than the front to get the trailing effect, but keeping it safe for trick or treating.


Jillian has some amazing make up skills and did her own hair and makeup. She did an incredible job and it really made this costume what it is, in my opinion.


Of course, we had to do her pictures at an old cemetery. We gave a runner quite the spook, too. That's the sign of an amazing costume. LOL


I mean, if I was running down a hill and came across this, I'd be pretty spooked myself!


 I love when simple has a big impact. 




Hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!
